  1. [URL="https://www.instagram.com/drcarloswesley/]#BeforeAndAfterMondays[/URL] This 29-year-old man underwent a [URL="http://www.drcarloswesley.com/follicular-unit-extraction//"]follicular unit extraction[/URL] ([URL="http://www.drcarloswesley.com/follicular-unit-extraction//"]FUE[/URL]) session with [URL="http://www.drcarloswesley.com"]Dr. Carlos K. Wesley[/URL] in which a total of 2300 grafts were placed His hair follicles were incubated in autologous (his own) [URL="http://drcarloswesley.com/innovations/"]platelet rich plasma[/URL] ([URL="http://drcarloswesley.com/innovations/"]PRP[/URL]) throughout the duration of the procedure. This, combined with an ATP-containing storage solution [URL=“https://youtu.be/owR_yeezZ0o”]has been shown to enhance survival of transplanted hairs[/URL]. Rather than a larger FUE punch used by a robotic approach, Dr. Wesley used a smaller caliber hand-held motorized punch to performed the donor harvest. This approach better enabled the capture of donor hair roots that are slightly curved beneath the skin surface. Upon completion of the harvest, the patient’s donor area was treated with PRP and ACell in order to not only minimize scar tissue formation, but also encourage partial regeneration of donor hair follicles. The patient returned 18 months after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen below. This link illustrates the [URL=“https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gplB8Xckz2I&t=267s”]timing of hair growth after surgery[/URL].

  2. Actually this patient was not taking finasteride or any other medications so this is just from the procedure. This was a traditional FUT procedure
  3. #BeforeAndAfterMondays This 33-year-old man underwent a follicular unit transplantation (FUT) session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 2633 grafts were placed. The patient’s hair follicles were incubated in platelet rich plasma (PRP) throughout the duration of the procedure. This, combined with an ATP-containing storage solution has been shown to enhance survival of transplanted hairs. As with all of Dr. Wesley’s patients, he was NOT required to cut his hair for the procedure. As a result, this patient was able to return comfortably to work and social activities within approximately 7-10 days of his procedure. The patient returned 10 mos. after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen below.
  4. #BeforeAndAfterMondays This young man underwent a FUT session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 2278 grafts were placed. The patient’s hair follicles were incubated in platelet rich plasma PRP throughout the duration of the procedure. This, combined with an ATP-containing storage solution has been shown to enhance survival of transplanted hairs. As with all of Dr. Wesley’s patients, he was NOT required to cut his hair for the procedure. As a result, this patient was able to return comfortably to work and social activities within approximately 7-10 days of his procedure. The patient returned 12 months after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen below.
  5. #BeforeAndAfterMondays While all patients emphasize the importance of a natural-appearing hair transplant, this 33-year-old male was particularly adamant. This young man underwent a follicular unit transplantation FUT session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 2644 grafts were placed. The patient’s hair follicles were incubated in platelet rich plasma PRP throughout the duration of the procedure. This, combined with an ATP-containing storage solution has been shown to enhance survival of transplanted hairs. As with all of Dr. Wesley’s patients, he was NOT required to cut his hair for the procedure. As a result, this patient was able to return comfortably to work and social activities within approximately 7-10 days of his procedure. The patient returned 12 months after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen below.
  6. #BeforeAndAfterMondays This dedicated 33-year-old did it! By painstakingly capturing images of his scalp each day following his 2453 graft follicular unit transplantation FUT session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley and team, he created a time lapse of his hair growth. The patient’s hair follicles were incubated in platelet rich plasma PRP throughout the duration of the procedure. Patients have heard of the possible "shock loss" of pre-existing hairs following the procedure as well as the recovery. This video helps illustrate the process. As with all of Dr. Wesley’s patients, he was NOT required to cut his hair for the procedure. As a result, this patient was able to return comfortably to work and social activities within approximately 7-10 days of his procedure. In addition to capturing this detailed series of images at home, the patient also returned to the United Sates one year after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen in the video.
  7. #BeforeAndAfterMondays This male patient underwent a follicular unit extraction (FUE) session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 2336 grafts were placed. His hair follicles were incubated in autologous (his own) platelet rich plasma (PRP) throughout the duration of the procedure. This, combined with an ATP-containing storage solution has been shown to enhance survival of transplanted hairs. Rather than a larger FUE punch used by a robotic approach, Dr. Wesley used a smaller caliber hand-held motorized punch to performed the donor harvest. This approach better enabled the capture of donor hair roots that are slightly curved beneath the skin surface. Upon completion of the harvest, the patient’s donor area was treated with PRP and ACell in order to not only minimize scar tissue formation, but also encourage partial regeneration of donor hair follicles. The patient returned three years after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen below.
  8. #BeforeAndAfterMondays "While it cannot be assumed that all patients will develop a fuller hairline without a surgical intervention or without taking oral medication, this 35-year-old male benefitted from a non-surgical approach. In addition to undergoing 2 Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP/ACell) treatments with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley, he also used a topical finasteride blend each night. The high percentage and broad distribution of miniaturized hairs throughout his hairline made him a good candidate for this approach. With this non-surgical approach to treating hair loss, he was able to reverse the biologic course of the thousands of miniaturized follicles atop his head and generate more hair fullness. Dr. Wesley previously delivered [URL=“https://youtu.be/owR_yeezZ0o”]an in-depth lecture on PRP scalp treatment[/URL] for genetic hair loss detailing all aspects of this procedure. The benefits and limitations of PRP procedures are described in this video for all interested patients who would like to learn more about this novel therapy. The patient returned one year after his PRP treatment series (involving 2 procedures) and images of the patient can be seen below.
  9. #BeforeAndAfterMondays A 16-year-old boy was referred to our practice by the Little Baby Face Foundation due to marked cranial scarring that he suffered from corrective surgeries years prior. Dr. Wesley and his staff performed a pro bono surgical scar correction using follicular unit transplantation.
  10. #BeforeAndAfterMondays Curly Hair and FUE Unite! FUE 2334 grafts: Carlos K. Wesley, MD (NYC)" This 27-year-old man underwent a follicular unit extraction (FUE) session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 2334 grafts were placed His hair follicles were incubated in autologous (his own) platelet rich plasma (PRP) throughout the duration of the procedure.

  11. #BeforeAndAfterMondays The Desire for Better Female Facial Framing (1229 grafts): Carlos K. Wesley, M.D. (NYC & LA) This 70-year-old female had previously undergone an FUT session with a different clinic. She wasn't satisfied with the outcome and sought a better framing of her face with fuller temporal recessions. She can be seen before and one year after her session with our team. Her hair follicles were incubated in autologous (her own) platelet rich plasma (PRP) throughout the duration of the procedure. This, combined with an ATP-containing storage solution has been shown to enhance survival of transplanted hairs[/URL]. As with all of Dr. Wesley’s patients, she was NOT required to shave her hair for the procedure. As a result, this patient was able to return comfortably to work and social activities within approximately 7-10 days of his procedure. The patient returned one year after her procedure and images of the patient can be seen below.
